Day 13 – A Video of Your Worst Riding

Day 13 – A Video of Your Worst Riding

I never see any video of me riding and think “Wow, I look so good!  I should definitely become a professional.”  One might classify me as overly critical.  This probably contributes to the fact that I have virtually 0 video of me riding.  These videos are super old, so this is a combo “bad riding” and “blast from the past” video post.

Eventually, I did start doing better than 6th and then I won some.  There are 3 ribbons in…
